Vehicle crashes into Minneapolis apartment, 12 injured

It happened at Lowry and Colfax avenues in north Minneapolis.

A pickup truck slammed into an apartment building Friday night in north Minneapolis, resulting in 12 injuries. 

According to Minneapolis police, the incident happened around 9:30 p.m. when the truck went through the intersection of N. Lowry and Colfax avenues, then slammed into Ideal Apartments at 1001 N. Lowry Ave. 

Twelve people were injured, but it's not clear those injured were in the truck, outside the apartment building or inside the building. None of the injuries are believed to be serious. 

Police say alcohol is not a factor and the driver of the pickup could've been suffering from a medical condition that caused the crash.
